On November 22 it will have been 50 years since President Kennedy was assassinated. Having died so young he's fixed in our collective consciousness as a man of ceaseless charm,  a man of persistent intelligence, a man who could have been the nation's greatest president. 

Since his legacy has been obscured by endless speculations--from how he would have handled Vietnam to how he really died--we lose sight of  his true accomplishments and leadership.

Harvard Business School historian Nancy Koehnjoined Boston Public Radio to help recognize the real JFK, not the imagined one.

Give Koehn's conversation with hosts Jim Braude and Margery Eagan a listen. It's what we call a "driveway moment."
